India watches as KP Oli faces ‘revolt’
NEW DELHI: After the initial hostility over Nepal’s new map, the government has adopted, for now, a more sedate approach to the neighbour, not least because of the fissures in the ruling communist party coming to the fore in the past few days. While it may be too early to say that Nepal PM K P Oli’s days are numbered, his combative rival in the party, P K Dahal Prachanda, has made it clear he has had enough of the unilateral manner in which Oli is allegedly working.
According to reports from Nepal, Oli is already facing calls for his resignation. India has also closely followed reports that Nepal may have ceded territory to China but this has been strongly denied by Nepal’s foreign ministry.
India’s reaction to internal developments in the past week or so in Nepal has been limited to reminding Kathmandu that the government has worked to ensure that supplies of essentials to Nepal despite the lockdown have remained unaffected. Recalling that bilateral trade with Nepal surpassed $300 million in May, the government said this week that people of India and Nepal shared deep-rooted and familial bonds which reflected the close civilisational and cultural linkages between the two countries.
While even Prachanda is not seen as particularly friendly to India, the government here believes he has never really undermined India’s interests the way Oli has.
Nepali people have understood that Oli is a useless guy. People of Nepal still consider Indians as their family. Oli will not remain in the power for long that’s sure.
India-Nepal : we are one...
The Brainless Oli Topi don't even know if India closes its border with Nepal - They will be back in Stone Age
India should star full war with China and teach them lesson. We have strongest Army in the world. China will beg.
We still believe Nepal is our true friend , it will come back to us ...
We have to be more active in maintaining relations with Nepal...
Better merge Nepal into India before China eats it up like
Who ever at helm of affairs in Nepal is their internal affair . India should try and win back confidence it enjoyed with Himalayan Kingdom .
